It was already announced that the first Guild Wars 2 Beta weekend that is not under NDA will be happening on Friday, April 27, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and ends on Sunday, April 29, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). As per the Pre-Purchase announcement you will have a guaranteed access to this coming Beta Weekend if you have pre-purchased the game. Also, by luck you can also be chosen if you did signed up on the beta signup last February.
The good news is, we’re not bound by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). So we are free to take screenshots, shoot video, blog, tweet, write, or compose a rock opera to share your Guild Wars 2 experience with the world. Unfortunately, just like the previous press betas, we only have access to the three available races which are the Humans, Charr and Norn but luckily all the available classes are playable. World VS World is open for us to explore as well as the PvP feature and ArenaNet have also opened the metropolis of Lion’s Arch to beta players so we have a new streets to explore that we haven’t seen in the previous videos before!
